ALPHARETTA, Ga. – A friendly gathering of British cars will be in the delightful setting of downtown Alpharetta on Milton Avenue and Main Street on Saturday, March 29 from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.

During this free day out, visitors will see 100 British cars including a Rolls Royce, Aston Martin, Jaguar, Lotus Esprit, MG, Austin-Healey, Morgan, Triumph, McLaren, Peeler, Land Rover, MINI, Sunbeam, Jensen and DeLorean.

Shop around with local vendors and participate in arts and crafts. Have a glass of wine or beer and browse the unique cars while listening to the music of the Big Chicken Beatles Tribute Band, which will play from noon to 2 p.m. Grab some food at one of the food trucks that will include the Marlay Mobile and Australian Bakery food trucks.

“We thoroughly enjoyed having the British cars take over our downtown last year and are excited to see what the event has in store for us this year,” said Janet Rodgers, president and chief executive officer of the Alpharetta Convention and Visitors Bureau. “We expect the event to capture the attention of car enthusiasts from around the Southeast.”
